Well they used to not have detachable faceplates because of the ESN. They figured that since anyone who sees that it has ESN will know that the CD player is useless without the key CD. The wrong assumption on their part was that they thought everyone would know not to fuq with Eclipse. Most crackheads don't know the difference between an Jensen and an Eclipse, though. He'll steal em and sell either for $25.

Nice thing is, that if you have a CD player with ESN and you had it installed at a Eclipse retailer, then they'll send you a new one for free if your radio is stolen.

This one looks pretty nice, I think it might be the 5100 or 7100.

ESN still applies and the Three year warranty is now back if bought and installed from an authorized dealer. Apparently these things did make a difference because my inventory is getting lower everyday. :(

The Cd7k already had the detachable faceplate. (the original one released last year)

Yes it did, but now the 3100 and 5100 are also included in that. CD3000 was one of my best sellers due to the cost for my general customers. Now with the 3 year warranty back as well as detachable face it is just that much more enticing.

that and I believe the 5100 is in black and white

I'm just glad they finally got USB capabilities, I think I might swap my cd7k out for a 7100

okay so someone fill me in.

if you claim that it is stolen, basically how would they know? and does this mean a free unit?

You file a claim with them and you have to provide a police report along with a receipt from an authorized dealer including installation. Once verified they will send a new replacement.

I've never really like the eclipses but the 5100 or the 7100 might just be the replacement for my kenwood x889.

if i remember right the voltage changes alot with the hu's...

i think the 5000 had the highest preouts which always confused me why the 7000 didn't have as high a voltage...

i would like the hu's more if the 3100's were a higher preout as well...

what's the voltage specs on this years?

I've been using alpine hu's for the past 10 years, but ****, that pic makes me want one. Anyone know the best/cheapest place to get one? I'm assuming ebay.
